This old colonial home has been converted into a 3 story bar and restaurant. To get to the restaurant you have to climb stairs.

The portions were filling. The prices reasonable and the BBQ was delicious! There's also a lot of different, fun art pieces that are all around you and great conversation starters!

Unique place to pop in for a drink and enjoy some company. The have bottled and draft beer and you can stay inside or grab a table on the sidewalk. We vote for outside when you can.

This little place has a truly great bar burger and the best homemade potatoes chips I've ever had ! The burgers were perfect. Fries were great . The atmosphere is fun. Only negative it's in the basement at crystal mall. Would have loved this place to be uptop. Myra was our bartender /waitress. She was excellent !
